You Are Simply Wonderful!

Hello, My Friends!

Today’s card is created with the new Bloom & Grow stamp set and coordinating Budding Blooms Dies. I really Love this set great floral images that you are able to color in using the coloring tools of your choice, the possibilities are endless.

Bloom & Grow 1

I created today’s card using different coloring techniques. I first embossed using white embossing powder on Whisper White card stock measuring 51/4″ x 4″   and the FLORAL images stamped it on one side and then flip the paper over and stamped it on the other side. Now heat set it using the heat tool, using a sponge brayer and Mango Melody ink sponge over the top of the entire piece of Whisper White card stock creating an embossed resist technique.

Take a piece of Basic Black Card stock measuring 1″ x 4″ and emboss the sentiment “YOU ARE SIMPLY WONDERFUL” with white embossing powder heat set with your heat tool. Stamp the LEAF images with Granny Apple Green ink and the small FLOWER images with Melon Mambo ink, then use the coordinating Budding Blooms Dies to cut out the images. I colored the images with Water Color Pencils and a Blender Pen.

I applied snail adhesive the back right side of the Basic Black piece with the embossed sentiment then attached the Die cut Leaf images, glued the small flower images to the front right side, add dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and attach to the center of the Flower images on the layer created with the resist emboss technique.

I used White Twine and attached to the left side with a bow. Now glue these layers to your card base of Granny Apple Green 51/2″ x 81/2″ scored at 41/4″.

I really Love this technique it gives a real wow factor but is quick and easy. I hope you have enjoyed today’s card.

Petal Palette Mother’s Day Card!

Hello, My Friends!

One of my favorites will be retiring the Patel Palette and the coordinating Petal & More Thinlits Dies. If you like this set as much as I do be sure to order yours today because supplies are while they last.

Petal palette mother's day 1

I created today’s card with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Whisper White card stock scored at 4 1/4″, the second layer is an additional piece of Whisper White 5 1/4 “x 4”, which I embossed using of the Subtle embossing folder.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White, I stamped the ROSE images using Memento ink colored in the images with the blends markers Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Granny Apple Green. I then cut them out using the coordinating dies, using the floating frame technique I then applied cling wrap and cut out a Stitched Square from the Stitched Framlits Dies. Then applied dimensionals to the back. Using the Layering Squares Framelits I created a frame from Petal Pink card stock,  using the same Framlits Dies I cut out a piece of vellum to adhere to the back of the frame.

Using Granny Apple Green ink stamp the LEAF  image onto the vellum square, attached The vellum square to the back of the Petal Pink frame, I then attached the ROSE images to the front of the frame and peeled back the cling wrap paper, then glued the frame onto the embossed Whisper White piece have card stock.

Using scrap pieces of a Whisper White card stock I stamped the HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY sentiment using Memento ink from the Tea Together stamp set, I then cut it out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Framlits Dies. I then embossed an additional piece of Whisper White using the Swirls & Curls embossing folder, cut out this piece using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framlits Dies, attach the sentiment to the center using adhesive. I then attached a piece of Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon to the bottom half of the embossed layer then using dimensionals and the sentiment. I then glued this layer to the card base and added a few Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems to the upper left and bottom right corners.

Now the card is complete I have hope this inspired you!
